Back to Normal - SKP

Tuesday - I had brought up a Blu-Ray player from Fairbanks and finally got it installed in the RV. The old DVD player/amplifier got dumped a couple of years ago in Florida. I had put it by the dumpster and it was gone in about 15 minutes. I'm also trying to straighten out the mess of cables in that cabinet as it also has the antenneaDMR hotspot, Apple TV, DNS black hole, WiFi AP, and the HomeAssistant server. The router and the AT&T hotspot are on the other side of the TV.

It is a warm, muggy day with intermittent sprinkles. And this morning we had heavy fog. I think the humidity outside is 90% or something like that. The afternoon temperature was 70°F which is what I had been expecting. 

Yesterday, I was hooking the water back up and the ball valve for the shutoff for our site was leaking. I reported it and the valve was replaced about 15 minutes later.

The AT&T is still working well enough for me to participate in test sessions. The highs for the rest of the week and into next week are all in the low 70s. I hope it stays this way for a while. 

I noticed that the Ural rear turn signal lens was cracked with a small piece missing. I’m not sure when that happened. I used this super strong marine epoxy to put it back together. 

Wednesday - Lots of thunder and lightning last night but not a whole lot of rain. I'm trying a new recipe for beef short rib ragu. Usually, I just make it in the Instant Pot but one recipe said that a slow cooker will have even more flavor. I also used marsala in place of red wine. 

Later - After about six hours, I switched the Instant Pot to pressure cook as the meat was still not the "fall apart" texture that I prefer. I had it pressure cook for 50 minutes followed by natural release for about an hour. It came out delicious. 

The rain, thunder, and lightning returned in the evening.
